Dear PAOV,

We are excited to offer this amazing opportunity to hear directly from Wet’suwet’en hereditary leader Chief Dsta'Hyl - Adam Gagnon, in conversation with Mike Sawyer of the Citizens’ Oil and Gas Council.

Sign up today to connect with other passionate land, air and water protectors and find out how you can support Wet’suwet’en as they take their fight against industry to the courts.

Join us on Friday, April 3 at 4 pm PST/7 pm EST.

Chief Gagnon is a member of the Likhts’amisyu clan who have launched legal challenges to protect their traditional territory from fracked gas pipelines. He will talk about the Constitutional and Charter challenge to Coastal Gas Link and other fossil projects on Wet’suwet’en territory, based on the equity rights of future generations in a time of climate crisis.

Micheal Sawyer brings 30 years of extensive experience in Canadian regulatory and energy policy matters. Sawyer is no stranger to the power of citizen-driven justice. He’s famous for winning a court challenge against an LNG plant proposed for Lelu Island in NW British Columbia: three weeks later that project was cancelled.

This week a Mi’kmaq legal victory in The Supreme Court of Nova Scotia overturned the approval of the Alton LNG project! The achievements of Indigenous Peoples, and of community activists like Sawyer, are proof: people power works. And, when we forge alliances across the country, we are un-frackable.

Join this webinar series and find out how the strategic legal approaches being used in B.C., Quebec and Nova Scotia against fracked gas infrastructure can become a blueprint for fighting LNG projects all across the country.

Let’s use this period of physical distancing to connect online and share strategies to push back against fracked gas, and protect future generations.

Let’s keep the fires of the solidarity movement lit. The Wet’suwet’en struggle has resonated around the world: now, it’s time to enact solidarity from home.

Warmly,

The RAVEN Team
